Unicorn Jazz featured Jai Ram Srinivasan (A Christmas Carol) recently!

View this post on Instagram

Aside from his young age, Jai @jai.ram.srinivasan_official is a 9 year old child actor and singer who dreams big. He has some big accomplishments regardless of being diagnosed with cerebral palsy. A Broadway performer, actor, and singer, he began modeling at the age of five for @RunwayofDreams and @TommyHilfiger Adaptive. After those two gigs, Jai knew he wanted more. He has since modeled the children’s adaptive lines for Kohl’s and Appaman. He obtained a role during his first Broadway audition in which he was chosen to play Tiny Tim in “A Christmas Carol.” He looks forward to getting into the Broadway scene soon. Jai has a weakness in his left side due to his cerebral palsy that makes using his left hand and leg difficult. Furthermore, he has to wear a brace on his left leg and walks with a limp. Jai wants to be known for his advocating work towards other children with disabilities while paving the way to follow their dreams. His social media centers around showing parents of kids with cerebral palsy that their child’s dreams can be just as possible as his. Other than sports, Jai also enjoys rapping Broadway’s @hamiltonmusical with his friends and actively participates in voice lessons so that he may become a better singer and pursue a career as a musician.
